Welcome to the "Minus Connections" podcast. At the end of each month, you will find here a new episode by one of our artists, staff, friends...This podcast is not just a one hour mix of plain electronic music, it's supposed to be different! Each artist and his choice of songs tells a story - his own way to MINUS! The early influences, special songs for special moments etc... Whatever that might be, you will find the reason in the artwork window of your iTunes! Furthermore, the Connections podcast now includes selected projects from the MINUS EMBED initiative, which incorporates the work of creatives who've been invited to work with Richie Hawtin. Chosen individuals take part in a weekend excursion to catalog, document and respond to the experience using their own specific talents. The Embed concept provokes new ways of communication, connecting people closer to the world of Richie Hawtin.

    Hi folks… As winter draws near and the gloomy skies approach here in Portland, I made this mix with the season in mind. From the hypnotic vibe of Prurient and Rrose, to the pounding stomp of Raiz, and the 909 driven goth-punk of Røsenkøpf, there is plenty of post Halloween darkness to go around. Fear not though, there are a few optimistic moments peaking through those clouds. Ian O'Donovan's superb remix of "Goodlife", Jon Gurd and Joel Alter bring the Detroit sound to the table to funk things up. Anyways, hope you enjoy the mix and thanks so much for listening! Tracklist: 01 Deafheaven "Please Remember" Deathwish 02 Prurient "You Show Great Spirit" Blackest Ever Black 03 G. Gigli & Obtane "Industrial Assaults (Rrose remix)" 04 Pots Of Gold "Rainbows" Minus 05 Patrick Skoog "Saturnian Acid" Third Ear 06 Raiz "Cored1" VRV 07 Samuel L Session "Air Blast" KlapKlap 08 Antonio Valente "Mandrake" Sino 09 Cabaret Voltaire "Just Fascination (Kirk rmx)" Virgin 10 Jon Gurd "Sugar Coated Beak" DETSYNC 11 Sone "Bl

    In this podcast I share a small part of the electronic music which inspired and motivated me to become the musician I am now, and the producer I would still like to be. From 'mainstream' to 'experimental,' I hope you enjoy this mix of my personal Min and Max's.

    To celebrate the release of the latest MinMax compilation this month, I have devised a mix of tunes that embody both the minimal and maximal idea with an ear towards the summer ahead. From low-fi funk, through simmering melodic house onto more freaky techno offerings these are the sounds catching my ear and defining my dj sets lately. I hope you enjoy them as much as me! Jesse.

    In this podcast I featured tracks that were of influence on my sound and career. All of these tracks somehow led me to where I'm currently at as an artist. They inspired me and let me discover new sounds and genre's, allowing me to eventually move closer to Minus. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did again when putting together this podcast!

    Hello, my name is Derek. The path that led me to working for Rich stems back to the mid-nineties from simply listening and dancing to his sets. Around 1997, we became closer from when I worked at Record Time and would sell him records. In 2002, I was brought on to be his travelling technical assistant and from then I worked on other projects for him in the years that followed. In 2010, I was brought to Berlin to work compiling content for For my Minus Connections podcast, I decided to do a one-take all vinyl mix using only records that I associate with Rich's sets over the years. Some are obvious classics, while others maybe not so much. However, ALL of these selected tracks hold a very sweet spot in my heart, and provide countless memories of Richie playing them. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making it. Thanks!

    I started working with Richie Hawtin in 2010 when, along with Gareth Williams and Etienne Noreau-Hébert, we created software for the Plastikman Live tour and founded our software company Liine. This podcast is a musical self-portrait, the soundtrack of a path that has led me to Berlin and a life of eletronic music and technology. From growing up and raving in Trois-Rivières, to studying classical and electroacoustic music in Montreal, to moving to Berlin in 2008, here are some of the records that inspired me along the way.

    Minus is turning 15. To mark the occasion, I’ve decided to go through the entire catalog and select one track for every year, mixing all 15 in chronological order. I had a lot of fun doing this podcast, even if it was damn hard to compile the whole thing with such specifications. Hope you’ll like it and that it can be an opportunity to (re)discover some forgotten tunes. Chris.
